Saws can be used to cut both glass and stone, as well as tile and other materials. It is important to know what kind of material you will be cutting when choosing a saw. We offer a variety of saws with blades designed specifically for cutting glass.
We also have ring saws that cut a variety of materials. The advantage of the ring saws is that they can cut forwards and backwards, as well make curved cuts, depending on the blades used.
